Larry is an accomplished appellate litigator whose nationwide practice is devoted to representing businesses and industries in high-stakes appeals. After 42 years at what is now the world’s largest law firm, Larry departed Big Law to start his own Washington, D.C.-based appellate litigation boutique, Capital Appellate Advocacy.

Clients and colleagues routinely praise Larry for his strategic thinking, as well as for his analytical, brief writing and oral advocacy skills. He has authored hundreds of briefs on complex legal issues for parties or amici curiae in the Supreme Court, in every federal circuit court of appeals, and in state appellate courts, and has presented oral arguments in federal and state appellate courts throughout the United States. Much of Larry’s practice focuses on appeals that implicate significant federal interests—for example, cases involving federally regulated or procured products or services—or civil justice issues important to business and industry—for example, cases involving fairness in class-action or False Claims Act qui tam litigation. Larry is a nationally recognized expert on constitutionally based pretrial defenses, such as federal preemption of state-law product liability suits involving pesticides, drugs, medical devices, and other federally regulated products.

Larry’s thought leadership is reflected in his prolific professional writing and speaking. He was recently elected a fellow in the prestigious American Academy of Appellate Lawyers. He also is active in DRI-The Voice of the Defense Bar, where he serves as vice-chair of the Amicus Committee and a frequent author of Supreme Court amicus briefs on behalf of the 22,000-lawyer organization. Following graduation from Harvard Law School, Larry began his legal career as an Honors Program attorney in the Civil Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.
